Schallplattenkritik Nominees

Cynthia Nickschas/Richard Bargel

Good news this week is that two formerly Bonn-based musicians are on the nomination lists for the prestigious Preis Der Deutschen Schallplatten Kritik Awards for the second quarter of 2023. Good news also that they are not in competition with each other. The fact that Cynthia Nickschas’s latest release ‘Is’ halt so!’ is her most explosive release to date is reflected in its being nominated in the Rock category (where Iggy Pop and John Cale are amongst the high calibre competition). Richard Bargel’s ‘Dead Slow Stampede’, one of my albums of the year so far, is nominated in the Blues category. May the best Man and Woman win…!
Results are due on 15 May.

Further good news is that both are returning to Bonn for concerts later this year: Cynthia at Rheinbühne in Oxfordstrasse (12 May) and Richard at Unter Der Zeder in Bad Godesberg’s Kurpark (17 July)
